'The View Master' Rejects Kathy Griffin

Kathy Griffin has been dropped from "The View" for the second time.

The comedienne was due to appear on the daytime talk show on Tuesday January 30, 2008, to coincide with the final night of her sold-out stand-up show at Madison Square Garden, but she was left fuming after being dropped at the last minute.

Griffin tells the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, "I was supposed to be on 'The View' (today). But then I get a call from (executive producer) Bill Geddie, and he says, 'You were too mean to Barbara on your last special, so you can't come on.' Can you believe it? I've been banned before but never re-banned!"

Kathy Griffin co-hosted "The View" on several occasions following the departure of Rosie O'Donnell last year but was dropped after her long-running jokes about Barbara Walters led to speculation of a rift between the two.

So, I suppose Griffin has some new material now...thanks to Bill and Barbara. What goes around comes around.

On Rosie's blog today, the incident was mentioned:
